by the perceived desire to defend against the muslim obama jihad on ronald reagan's childhood home. are we hampered as a nation in our ability to address real problems in the evidence-based world if half of the people in politics do not live in that world? and if so, how does that get fixed? joining us now is chris hayes, who all of you will see again at 8:00 a.m. eastern tomorrow, because that's when he starts his show "up with chris hayes" here on msnbc. hi, chris. thanks for being here. >> thanks for having me. >> muslim jihad on president ronald reagan's childhood home. is she also diagnosing an american problem that should or could be fixed? >> it's -- yes. it should be fixed. and i don't know how to fix it. but i can tell you one place where it is a huge problem. and it's the biggest global problem we have, which is getting a climate change regime. i was talking to someone in washington, d.c. involved with climate negotiations for the u.s. government. now, if we're going to have an actual treaty, okay, that governs everyone's emissions, which is ultimately what we're going to have to get, you
of the debate over the fight against terrorism. what about the undermining of civil liberties here at home? the rights of suspects? the secret surveillance of american citizens? the swollen executive powers first claimed by george w. bush and now by barack obama? soon after he succeeded bush, president obama announced he would not permit torture and would close down the detention camp at guantanamo bay. he also said this -- >> our actions in defense of liberty will be just as our cause. and that we the people will uphold our fundamental values as vigilantly as we protect our security. once again america's moral example must be the bedrock and the beacon of our global leadership. >> four years later, guantanamo not only remains open, but a few days ago, the state department announced it was eliminating the office assigned to close the prison and move its detainees. meanwhile, president obama has stepped up the use of unmanned drones against suspected terrorists abroad. those drone attacks have killed a growing number of civilians and have prompted the united nations to launch an investigati
somebody in from the other party. which of course is what barack obama is doing. as i said, people against him in the hearing are likely not going to be the ones he is looking to as secretary as allies, to begin with. but generally this is a position that works across the aisle because of the position of the military. >> and he is a man without a home. because he is a republican in name, republicans don't think he is much of a republican. democrats, a lot of them don't -- they're not flthrilled with him because of the israeli comments. but he has to reach out to both sides of the aisle. >> he has work to do. let's talk about the economy and how it potentially could impact the president's political strength this year going into his second term. 157,000 jobs created in january. you take a look at the -- a lot of jobs created last year. still not moving. the economic growth as much as should -- but if you take a look at the jobs that have been created, you take a look at the dow jones. 14,000, it was under 7,000 when he attack office. how much of a political impact will it have on the preside
was against the surge in 2007. he was opposed to the surge in afghanistan under barack obama from 2009. told barack obama that he was getting ruled by the generals. she was skeptical quietly about the intervention in libya and now opposes any intervention in syria. gwen: thank you all. we want to take note passing of two men. ed koch, the three-term mayor of new york who transformed the city and became a celebrity in his own right. and max campleman, a diplomat who negotiated cold war treaties -- treatries and during one stage act is as moderator for "washington week in review." we have to go for now but the conversation continues online on the "washington week" webcast extra. we'll be talking about the massachusetts senate race and other topics and on our home page peak into the "washington week" video vault to see what doyle said about the immigration story back in 2007. he looks the same. keep up with daily developments over the pbs news hour and we'll see you again next week on "washington week." good night. >> corporate funding for "washington week" is provided by -- >> we know why we'
was there supporting president obama when they were running against one another. you get that. but this is a pretty serious job, tony. this is defense secretary. i mean, do you think that kind of politics, those maybe personal issues should be brought up under these circumstances? >> look, my bias -- jill talked about this earlier about the bias towards the president being able to name the members of his cabinet. i'm a strong believer in this. i don't like the senate holding up the president trying to put his staff in place. i don't think that's what's going to happen here. but in terms of tough grilling at a hearing, these are all grownups. and certainly like i said, chuck hagel has seen it from the other side of the desk for many years. he was a leader of tough questioning of witnesses who sat before him. he's a grownup. he should have been better prepared for it. he should have handled it better. but they cab get through this just fine, i think. >> so just fine, jill, ultimately does hagel get confirmed. even if he does do you think the white house has any second thoughts about this choice? >> i
so he came out swinging. >>. president obama first presidential debate against mitt rom. >> i don't know about strategy. i think it was collapse of preparation. if that's a strategy. then god help us if that's going to determine how we will will prepare for war. this is a pepper we are talking about for secretary of defense to lead the single most important institution in our government our defense forces. he didn't realize the secretary of defense had a policy function? i'm not sure what he thinks he is going to do. read military magazines and go look at some hardware. >> the good things about him is that, you know, the troops can really relate to him. he has purple hearts. shrapnel in the chest. but he he is not in charge of veterans affairs. he he would be in charge of our armed forces if he qualified and do you think he is going to get confirmed? >> i'm afraid he will get confirmed. i hope not. i would like to think that there would be some democrats, some prominent ones like chuck schumer and others who are strong supporters of israel. democrats but very strong supporters of
secretary jay carney released the photo. this comes against the backdrop of president obama heading to minneapolis to talk about gun safety measures on monday. craig? >> kristen welker, we will come back to you later. thank you. >> thanks, craig. >> now the hostage situation in alabama. police necessary constant communication with a man who allegedly snatched a 5-year-old boy from a school bus after shooting and killing the bus driver tuesday. gabe gutierrez is in midland city, alabama. what are authorities saying about the way the suspect is treating the child? >> good afternoon. as we have been reporting, police have been tight-lipped about the situation out of concern for the safety of the child. this afternoon the local sheriff did hold a brief conference where he gave insight into the negotiations. he said that the suspect is treating the child relatively well and the suspect has a heater and blankets in the underground bunker and actually thanked the suspect for how he was treating that child. that suggests the sensitivity of the negotiations. the suspect is jimmy lee dikes an
really gave an issue to barack obama who as a state senator was out there in chicago in probably a liberal district and he voted against the war without worrying about it. she hedged her bets and voted for the war, and i think that was her biggest impediment to winning. i don't think she has that kind of impediment this time around. >> no, and she learned how to communicate with working class folks. if you remember, chris, four or five years ago, hillary clinton's biggest problem was working class women, blue collar women. yet by the end of that campaign, she was racking up huge majorities in west virginia and kentucky and pennsylvania and places like that, and she attracted those working class women. she was like a rock star in the parades we went to in scranton and pittsburgh and places like that. so she learned to communicate as a populist, as a real populist. that will hold her in good stead. i think she learned to save some money for contingencies. remember, if they had any money after super tuesday, i think they would have been the nominee, but they spent all their money, a
putin came back to power he publicly castigated her for secretly fomenting a revolution against him. so she wasn't afraid to speak out in this role either in many ways. >> trudy, do you think she pulled the obama administration in a more hawkish direction than its own instincts might have done? >> not necessarily. you know, i think she hughed to the obama administration's position on syria which was trying to get a deal between the russians and the americans and not helping militarily. she stuck with that. on iran, she was a hawk during the primaries between her and obama. but obama has publicly, at least, advanced a hawkish position. so she seems to be walking in tandem with him there. so you know it isn't really clear if she had been left to her own devices or if obama had played richard nixon and made her his kissinger, whether she would have taken positions very different from his. as it is, because she was the implementer she tried to carve out some areas of her own, networking, public diplomacy, and working on women's issues. but even in those areas, including women's issues, i'm
iraq? we are prepared to say that senator obama had a view on iraq. it was one of the reasons he ran on that position and one in 2008 against senator mccain. he vowed to end the war in iraq in a with a protected our national security interests. now, he is focused on winding down the war in afghanistan. someone bizarrely, and given that we have 56,000 americans in uniform in afghanistan, senators yesterday, in a hearing for the nomination of the secretary of defense asked very few questions about that active war. instead, they wanted to read- litigate the past. -- relitigate the past. that argument will be assessed by participants and historians. we felt comfortable about where president obama has spent and is on that, and where senator hagel has been and is on that. what he is focused on, the president and the senator, is on the challenges we have today around the world, national security challenges. they include afghanistan, a subject that got short shrift yesterday among senators who were concerned about relitigating the past. we believe he will be confirmed. i think there has been
for office in 2008 and one. -- won. they were views expressed against a in a campaign against senator mccain. he promised to end that war, and he did. in 2008, senator mccain suggested we might have troops in iraq for 100 years. that is certainly not a position that president obama subscribes to. and chuck hagel does not believe that is the right one. we can all accept -- the president believes that senator hagel will make an excellent senate -- secretary of defense. he looks forward to working with senator hagel in that position as we continue to advance our national security priorities. >> the topic from yesterday. today's jobs data shows the unemployment rate rising. it has hovered in that range for a number of months. the economy created jobs. at a modest pace. we had a report recently of contraction in the nation's output in the fourth quarter of last year. there are people writing writing columns, calling for the need for a plan for faster growth, not deficit reduction. what does the president tell his advisers when he sees the signs of a sluggish recovery? what is he asking and the wa
